Publisher Partner Archives

The Publisher Partner Archives houses previously unavailable digital archives of 12 renowned Academic Publishers from around the world, all digitized­­ to pristine condition by De Gruyter.

Despite the wealth of intellect, the archives offer us, archives all around the world are going out of print because librarians no longer have the shelf space to store them. Consequently, hundreds of years’ worth of knowledge ceases to exist in the pages of history. De Gruyter recognizes the contribution archives make to the historiography and advancement of sciences and humanities.

Beginning in 2012, De Gruyter has successfully digitized over 13,000 archives (with 10,000 more in the pipeline) of 12 Academic Publishers and has made previously out-of-print titles available once again without compromising on the quality of content for our patrons.
